How to leave a gift in your Will

We recommend that you seek the advice of a solicitor to ensure that your wishes are carried out correctly

If you are writing your Will for the first time, then all you need to do is make your solicitor aware of your plan to leave a gift to Deaf Aspirations.

If you have already written your Will, then you just need to make a simple addition or amendment to your Will. To do this you just need to provide your solicitor with a completed Codicil Form.
